Elephant Stone's NEW Track featuring Alex Maas - "The Devil's Shelter" and North American Tour

Within seconds of hearing Montreal's psych rockers Elephant Stone's "The Devil's Shelter" featuring Alex Maas (the Black Angels) you feel transported to faraway places. It is not only the blending of traditional Indian Music with 70's-ish psych rock but the energy of the percussive bottom synth and buzzy post drag vocal delivery that makes you close your eyes and feel you body float away.

Elephant Stone's Rishi Dhir talks about the songs tone and inspiration: "I knew all along that the dark mood of this song needed something even darker. Lo and behold, a Black Angel came to my rescue. Alex Maas and I have been friends for well over 10 years and I try to collaborate with him as much as possible.  I sent him a bunch of my demos for our new album to get his feedback. Of all the songs, I felt this one was missing something. He offered to re-sing this whole song and I could do with it what I wanted. On the first playback of his vocals, I knew the song had what it needed. His voice can summon Tibetan monks, Nico and the devil all at once. He definitely brought the darkness to my light."
